Beginner Couponer on Board

Ok, let's first start out with a moment of silence for my Steelers..........thank you.

And now, for my next big project.  I have decided that I'm determined to become a couponing queen!  My husband will deploy at the end of March and I'm going to use that time to become a great coupon shopper.  I've tried this once before.  But I didn't do it right.  I wasn't using the coupons while items were on sale and I was buying things I didn't need just because I had a coupon.  So, I'm trying again and I want to do it right this time.  I've been doing a lot of research and I feel like I'm ready to start.  I know that it will take me some time to get really good at it, so I'm not expecting huge savings right away, but I'm excited to get started.  I literally spent all day organizing my coupon binder, going through coupons I already have and studying this week's circulars for two stores near my house.  And let me tell you, I already found a couple of great deals.  I will be blogging about this experience and hopefully some of you have tips for me or will learn from some of my adventures.  Scissors ready....and....clip!


  1. Good luck! I would love to do that too but have zero patience!

  2. Ha ha ha know I start doing the coupon thing a few years ago and now even my husband is into really works...I think we're raelly good at it....the cashier always tell us "that's smart shopping" ...just be patience and dont'n buy things that u dont'n need.
